This three-days session is specifically designed for team managers active in science-based organizations. Learn about the specifics of leading teams of scientists, the challenge of being an S&T manager in Government and the complexity of working with both S&T and Public Sector values. Facilitated by two experienced leaders in S&T organizations, this workshop will help you lead teams through change, use effective feedback approaches to enhance performance and deal with conflicts arising in the context of scientific work.
